    Winning!!

    Winner winner chicken dinner

    Tee shirt time

    I have tiger blood flowing thru the veins tonight

    Dougie explain to me why these poker chips don't have numbers printed on them and instead are colors that I can't tell apart.

    Did I just bet 5k or 100 on my turn? Dam you colors

    Flight leaves in 3:30 hours. Right now I posting from a local strip club.

    So far today on my day off I have slept in, hit hooters for lunch and just had a few lap dances and beers at a local strip club. Yes at 2 in the afternoon. Only 2 hot chicks and $5 dances which makes it kinda fun. Once I finish this last beer off to the airport.

    yeah, Wed before the tourney is usually pretty busy. Good luck though, hope you get to Luxor soon and man, your pre Vegas sounds more fun than my normal Vegas. I need to step it up this year. Have a great time and looking forward to the update. Let me know how Luxor is please. We almost booked that but went with Signature instead. Later.

    Update

    If I was only 22. Luxor is now packed with tons of eye candy for spring break. Sat at the warm up bar next to LAX. Lost $40 playing VP but had 2 red bulls and vodka and then 3 Fat tires over an hour. Very fun to watch everyone in line, etc.


    Time to hit the BJ tables

    Recap last night

    Sorry for the late recap. Hit the BJ tables with a $300 buy in. Got almost down to the felt but made it all the way back to even. Called it a night at 2am as I need to get up at .7:45 to get ready for the games.

    Biggest hand was $25 out got pair if 9s Vs dealer 7. Split got another 9. Split again. Got 17, 18 then 11. Double and got 19. Dealer flips over a 6 then an 8 for a 21. Not good.

    M resort

    At m resort. Sitting next to guys betting 3k on games. Makes my flat $100 bets look silly.

    Took wvu, Penn ST, Richmond, wofford, ucla and Utah ST. Going with all dogs except the first game.

    M resort is very nice although $38 cab ride from Luxor. Will take the free shuttle back to the strip.

    Won on west Virginia and psu with the points. Can't believe it is only 1:45. Feels like 10pm. That is what starting to drink hard at 9am with no sleep will do to you.

    Love the report...

    I'm lovin' the live report!

    I had Gonzaga, Richmond, and a ML parlay today. A nice 3-0 for day 1. Since I'm off from work tomorrow as well, I'll have some day 2 action as well.

    Keep swingin' for the fences!
